Our Ottawa car hire services will greatly improve your next trip to Canada’s capital. Ottawa is located on the Ontario side of the Ottawa River and it is the fourth largest city in the country with a population of about 1.1 million inhabitants.
Due to the unique character of Canada’s population Ottawa is a bilingual city with English being the mainly spoken language and French a very close second. This is best evidenced by the fact that the staff in most stores will speak both those languages very well.
Ottawa is serviced by the recently renovated and expanded Macdonald-Cartier Ottawa Airport. The airport is located within easy reach of public transit and taxis but by far your best choice would be to employ our Ottawa car rental services and have a car of your choice ready for you at the airport as soon as you land.
Getting around the capital by car should not pose a big problem as it would around some of Europe’s capitals, especially since parking shouldn’t be a problem when you visit the main attractions, however on-street parking might prove a bit harder to find.
The city has many attractions to offer and our Ottawa car hire services will only help you see as many of those attractions as possible, for instance Parliament Hill. This is the first attraction that most visitors will see because it is located in the middle of the city and it overlooks the river.
The building is a great example of Gothic revival architecture and it’s usually used as a starting point to visit other sights in the surrounding area.
The Museum of Civilization is an interesting place to visit especially if you want to understand the history of the country a bit better as the museum presents the story of the country’s population starting with the Aboriginal migrations till the British and French colonization of the 1500s and everything in between. This museum features a lot of interesting exhibits such as full sized Salish totem poles as well as a recreation of a small prairie town.
These are of course only a few of the many more attractions and sights that Canada’s capital has to offer, so make sure to employ our Ottawa car hire services in order to see as many of them as possible.
